The A-G GHG Emissions Rating provides a systematic and transparent means of comparing the relative theoretical efficiency and sustainability of the existing fleet of approximately 70,000 existing ships (including the majority of the world's container ships, tankers, bulk carriers, cargo ships, cruise ships and ferries) by measuring a ship’s theoretical CO2 emissions per nautical mile travelled.
A vessel’s GHG Emissions Rating is presented using the standard European A - G energy efficiency scale and relative performance is rated from A through to G, the most efficient being A, the least efficient being G.
ShippingEfficiency.org is an initiative launched by the Carbon War Room and RightShip.
Conformity with Shipping Efficiency - A to G GHG Emission Rating's standard is verified by n/a - no verification / certification is required.
Certification / registration required
